Biography

Beppe Dettori, singer and guitar player, actually the lead voice of the well known Sardinian ethno-rock group TAZENDA. His artistic background stretches over 20 years of live performances, both in Sardinia and main land Italy. He opened the concerts of many traditional sardinian singers, like Piero Marras, he grew up surrounded by the most amazing traditional musicians and throath-polyphonic singers of his homeland. Then he moved to Milano and started to work and tour as backing vocalist and musician of famous Italian popstars, such as Eros Ramazzotti, Vasco Rossi, Gianluca Grignagni, Ron, Enrico Ruggeri, besides many Tv appearances. For 2 years he joined Tancaruja, a band of sardinian roots that explored north-african music, ra and world music and recorded for CNI, getting good critics, he took part to various festivals. Since some years Beppe Dettori is Tazenda's main singer, after the loss of their historic and highly respected leader Andrea Parodi. He also keeps working on traditional music mixing it with pop and rock. In his own project Kapajanca, he plays and sings his own material, which develops from ancient melodies and harmonies of sardinian tradition, melting with new sounds of different and far away cultures and languages, like spanish and arabian and portugese, giving life to a multiethnical original project, as shown on his cd “Beppe Dettori & Kapajanca Project 01”
